    Pros

    Great benefits, decent pay, family oriented.

    Cons

    It seems that if you are a failure in lower management, they promote you instead of firing you.

    Advice to Management

    Hire experienced middle management that knows aviation. A successful manager in other industries does not equate to successful aircraft manufacturing/maintenance management.

    Pros

    The work force in the DCR shop is great. In the other shops the supervisors/managers are great.

    Cons

    Five supervisors in eight years says it all in the DCR shop. The wheel gets reinvented time and time again. If you are looking to advance look elsewhere very good old boy.

    I worked at Airbus Group (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I found Airbus to be a great place to work. I was always treated as a valued member of a team. The competency level of my peers was of the highest level. The management team was great to work for and provided good two-way communication with the subordinates. The facility was the best I've ever experienced. The benefits package was also the best I've ever been provided with.

    Cons

    I really do not have any negative comments to make regarding my time there.

    Pros

    The people and laid back environment

    Cons

    Clickish; they cater to who they know/like and have history with; Mngmt more concerned about saving pennies in ridiculous redundant areas rather than the actual quality of the product; concerned with doing ONLY what the UK bosses want and not standing up for the Wichita office; would rather cut corners is the forefront of the philosophy-not the 'product'
